)-- As Nashville continues to be featured in the culinary limelight, the MCSCF contributes to the growth and popularity by showcasing Music City's nationally recognized culture of cocktails and the bar chefs that make them.
Festival special guest, Marianne Eaves, is associate process research engineer in the Research and Development group where she supports global production for Brown-Forman Corporation. She is the selected protégé of Brown-Forman Master Distiller Chris Morris and is the Woodford Reserve Master Taster. Together with Morris, Eaves is responsible for maintaining the award-winning taste of the Woodford Reserve brand.
Also in attendance at a special seminar; Dr. David Wondrich (he holds a PhD in Comparative Literature) lives in Brooklyn with his wife Karen and daughter Marina, barely a block away from O'Connor's Bar, where he likes to drink Boilermakers - but only because they don't know how to make a decent Brandy Crusta.
Known as a cocktail historian, read what the Manhattan Cocktail Classic had to say about David Wondrich.
"A living iPod of drink lore and recipes" (the New York Times), or, if you prefer, a "crazy, bearded Civil War general" (Conan O'Brien), David Wondrich is the world's foremost expert on the history of the American cocktail. As Esquire magazine's Drinks Correspondent, he has ranged far and wide through the world of booze, covering everything from Kentucky bourbon to Chinese cocktails. He also writes for Saveur (where he is the Wine and Spirits Editor) and The Malt Advocate (where he is the cocktail columnist), and has contributed to a host of other publications, from Bon Appetit, Gourmet and Wine & Spirits to Oprah, Real Simple, Martha Stewart's Blueprint, Marie Claire and too many others to count."
